of the nra and they are joined by tens of millions much supporters throughout the country. it's on behalf of those millions of decent hard working law-abiding citizens that i'm here today to give voice to their concerns. the title of today's hearings is what should america do about gun violence? we believe the answer to that question is to be honest about what works and honest about what doesn't work. teaching safe and responsible gun ownership works and nra has a long and proud history of doing exactly that. our child safety program told 25 million young children if they see a gun they should do four things, stop, don't touch it, leave the area and call an adult. as a result of this and other private sector programs, fatal firearms accidents are at the lowest level in 100 years. the nra has over 80,000 certified instructors who teach our military personnel and law enforcement officers and hundreds and thousands of other men and women how to savely use firearms. we do more and spend more than anyone else on teaching safe and responsible gun ownership. we join the nation in sorrow over the
private sector programs, fatal firearms accidents are at the lowest level in 100 years. the nra has over 80,000 certified instructors who teach our military personnel and law enforcement officers and hundreds and thousands of other men and women how to savely use firearms. we do more and spend more than anyone else on teaching safe and responsible gun ownership. we join the nation in sorrow over the tragedy that occurred in newtown, connecticut. there's nothing more precious than our children. we have no more sacred duty than to protect our children and to keep them safe. that's why we ask former congressman and undersecretary of homeland security hutchinson to bring in every available expert to develop a model school shield program, one that can be individually tailored to make our schools as safe as possible. it's time to throw an immediate blan ket of security around our children. about a third of our schools right now have armed security already because it works. and that number is growing every day. right now state officials local authorities and school districts in 50 states are co
. feels like membership. >>> in the wake of newtown, the nra's wayne lapierre, the philosopher behind the only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun, focused his gimmlet eye on the entertainment industry. >> a thousand music videos, and you all know this, portray life as a joke, and they play murder, portray murder, as a way of life. and then they all have the nerve to call it entertainment. but is that what it really is? isn't fantasizing about killing people as a way to get your kicks really the filthiest form of pornography? >> last night, the gun lobby's chief wordsmith directed his criticism towards president obama and his inaugural message. we will discuss coming up next. my insurance rates are probably gonna double. but, dad, you've got... [ voice of dennis ] allstate. with accident forgiveness, they guarantee your rates won't go up just because of an accident. smart kid.

of the n.r.a. as he spoke to reporters following the shooting in newtown, connecticut, which he says should be a broad solution. [video clip] >> is the press and political class here in washington, d.c. so consumed by fear and hatred of the n.r.a. and american gun owners that you are willing to accept a world where real resistance to evil monsters is alone, unarmed, school principal left to surrender her life -- her life -- to shield children in her care? no one, regardless of personal, political project dis, -- prejudice, has the right to impose that sacrifice. ladies and gentlemen, there's no national one size fits all solution to protecting our childr children. but do know this president zeroed out school of urgency planning grants in last year's bucket and scrapped secure our schools policing grants in next year's budget. with all of the foreign aid the united states does, with all the money in the federal budget, can't we afford to put a police officer in every single school? even if they did that, politicians have no business and no authority denying us the raoeigh right, ability an
think with every bushmaster that is sold, the nra ought to give coupons to "the book of eli" and get "the road," which is a great book. of course, zombies, people eating people, end of the world-type stuff. >> okay. so we will get to this ridiculous testimony on capitol hill as well as some of the powerful testimony in just a moment. i want to do these other stories first. you have to stay with me here. come on, now. >> they had a bushmaster. they tried to eat them, lock and load. >> what do i do? >> he almost died in the driveway. he almost -- denzel almost died, if he had a bushmaster or anyone -- a rocket launcher -- >> come here, now. it's all right. >> have you seen "the book of eli"? >> i have. it's a great underrated movie. >> you know what else i saw? i just saw it. denzel, man, "flight." >> that's good. that's good. flying upside down. >> there are good movies this year. >> flying upside down. >> including -- >> you know -- >> okay. >> the stewardess had a bushmaster, she could have shot him before he got on the plane. >> now i'm going to do the top story. cut his mike. toda
and galvanizing support to overcome the nra and other entrenched interests, which no doubt, no question will fight them, make no mistake, there will be a fight. but as you said, the centerpiece really is a comprehensive program that has to include the background checks. i propose background checks on ammunition purchases as well as extended background checks on firearms purchases so as to cover that 40% of private sales and gun show sales that are not now covered and a comprehensive program of preventing gun violence has support from the majority of americans. we need to make that support focused on washington, d.c. so our congressional representativ representatives, whether in the senate or the house, cannot escape the brunt of that opinion. >> senator murphy, let me turn to you for a moment. you represented newtown as newtown's congressman. now as senator you represent the entire state of connecticut as their senator. connecticut is a small state, but it is a diverse state. it is both diverse in terms of urban and rural areas. it's diverse in terms of its population. and in terms of its politica
at him pretty hard about those statements. where do you see this going from here? >> i think the nra is marginalizing itself daily with the statements they're making and probably making it easier for senate democrats to act. i spoke with a senior member of the house who said to me that this is going to have to start in the senate. that this personal believed that you could pass a pretty decent gun control measure in the house if the senate acted first. >> let's go back to senator feinstein. >> designed originally for the military to kill large numbers of people in close combat. are replicated for civilian use. they fall into the hands one way or another, of grievance killers, of gangs, of those who are mentally unstable or ill. they are sold out of trunks and back-seats of automobiles in cities as well as gun shows with no questions asked. massacres have taken place in businesses, law practices, malls, movie theaters, and especially schools. these massacres don't seem to stop. they continue on. columbine, virginia tech, aurora, tucson, oak creek. a common thread in these shootings is
of the nra and the money that they contribute to members and the domination by republicans on the house side who will not let it get to the floor? >> well, listen, those are all things that are certainly out there, and anybody that ever underestimates the nra don't kid yourself. they are extremely powerful. what i'm saying is newtown did change because the american people have responded to it overwhelmingly. here we are 47 days after the shooting, and we're still talking about it. that's how deeply it's affected everybody. it's going to be up to the american people to be very honest with you on where we go. saturday there's going to be the million moms walking against gun violence across the country. we have more groups than we've ever seen before stepping up and saying how can we help? it's really a matter of organizing and even in the white house getting out there almost like a campaign and educating the american people on really telling them what we're trying to do, not talking away the rights of someone to own a gun. this past week we had several hearings, and we had gun owners. we had h
that is literally so distracting as we speak does not have a credible response, and it has the nra fronting in a way that is not credible and effective. lou: says you. >> says need. lou: issing -- i think the nra has been extraordinarily effective. why do you say that? >> when you don't agree to talk to the vice-president and say you need armed guards at every school it is not seen as an effective -- lou: the american public. refining and schools all of these countries -- this country have armed guards, a policeman and then. and that is a revelation. what they have them? they have not had those shootings. >> the president is using -- lou: with the exception of, where they had two security guards who could not get close enough, apparently to shoot. >> the president will use this tragedy in sandy hook to try and -- lou: is going to exploit it. i understand that. >> a comprehensive gun-control legislation. the question is, and he has not said yet have details. the fact is, we should have a conversation, but the conversation should be held with mental ellis, the type of registration that makes sense. lo
. >> and we see joe mansion from the nra, saying li ining things is chon sense. back ground checks, that seems to be the spot where there is the most likely opportunity. >> lawmakers say look, if the senate can get through a bill that is something that can work. the nra is in a marketplace. part of the reason they satisfy such an extreme position. there are other groups competing for the same money. >> then gun owners of america will fill in the marketplace and not the nra. >> joy evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. now is the time for america to get laser focused on how the republicans are trying to steal the next election. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout, especially in urban areas. >> forget policy. if you can't win it, just go ahead and rig it. the gop moves to steal elections. first stop? virginia. david corn and charnelle herring tell us if the dirty move could work. the right still can't handle hillary. >> she obviously has an enduring media. >> so the king of the sunday shows bites
and wait. this is not the first school shooting. it's not the first mass killing. and every time the nra has come out ahead in the last 20 years, and they have just watched and waited. so you don't see them actively pushing every day on this. and they were silent for the first week -- >> jennifer: but he really goofed it up when he came out. that's right. >> jennifer: joe if the president is behind it he said in the meet the press interview, and other places that one of his first priorities is going to be this gun safety legislation, if the president really pushes it joe, can he get it through congress? >> it's an open question for a couple of different reasons. you will have the bully pulpit of the president behind it. that's different. but secondly you have got diane feinstein who one would remember historically was there in san francisco when harvey millford was shot. and she is pushing legislation to ban high-capacity magazines, ban assault weapons, and require extensive background checks everything the president said she wanted. and she is no slouch when it com
to worry about or the n.r.a. members or the tea party members, you have written. it's the crooks. if they want to do something bad, they're going to figure a way to get a gun. >> it's interesting because i never considered myself part of that crowd in any way. i'm not a firearms guy in any way. but when you look at all the killings being committed, whether the drive-by shootings in compton or watts or places like harlem or look at school shootings at places like sandy hook or columbine, none of these people are people that go to gun shows. you never hear about those people committing killings. maybe everyone has to calm down on this issue and take a moment to breathe. >>steve: before you go, i think to combat what happened, for instance, in sandy hook is the same thing the n.r.a. said and the president himself yesterday said we need more money for people with guns in schools? >> we've got a problem. we've got to address it. and we're going to have to pay for it a little bit. if that means emboldening law enforcement with more funds, we've got to do that. >>steve: jeffrey scott sh
they're democrats or republicans are bowing to the nra. they're not representing gun owners they're represent be begun manufacturers. and it's a shame. it's their job to represent what the people want. not the corporations, not the gun sellers and that's being missed in this debate. >> jennifer: it is, but i know joe biden was out having a fireside google hang out trying to persuade, and i'm glad the administration is taking the case on the road. karl frisch, professor jason johnson thank you for joining me inside "the war room." >> thank you. >> thanks, governor. >> jennifer: you bet. in the 41 days since the tragedy at newtown, 41 days now, at least 1121 americans have died due to gun violence. of course, those who die are just a fraction of the victims of gun violence. 13-year-old gabriel clark of massachusetts is still recovering after being shot last friday. it's tragic that something so horrific could happen to someone so young but the circumstances are even worse. gabriel was walking to his church to attend choir practice when a car drove past him. someone from the car sho
point. you are absolutely right that nra members are not necessarily in sync with the impression that nothing could happen on guns. about a year ago, republican pollster frank luntz conducted a poll of nra members and found overwhelming support for common sense regulations like universal background checks. 40% of guns are sold at gun shows or through the internet. there is an overwhelming number of nra members, gun owners, and just the general public who support these provisions. as well, the high capacity magazines to over 60% of americans, including gun owners, support limiting those high capacity magazines. it is a question of just some lore that has built up since 1994, when, after bill clinton got the assault weapons ban through, he lost his majority in the house, and the democrats have been essentially scared of the issue since then. but i think, you know, as part of this new strategy of winning public pressure to bear things done, it is possible that if the democrats and some moderate republicans continue to highlight these numbers, many americans, including gun owners, su
's going to get primaried or whatever by the nra. it has to be something because that should have passed. >> bill: i guess your cell phone cut out. i'm sorry. no. you made a good point. no. i don't understand why the change either why given -- there were enough democratic votes. i said that of before. why, given this opportunity, and particularly given the fact everybody in this country knows that the congress is broken. look everybody knows it needs fixing. and here they just refused to do it. bad news for us. bad news. >> this is "the bill press show." (vo) current tv gets the converstion started weekdays at 9am eastern. @ [ music ] >> chatting with you live a lot current.com/billpress. this is "the bill press show" live on your radio and current tv. >> bill: hey, how about it, 33 minutes after the hour on this friday january 25th. we are talking about the filibuster, the great big filibuster reform. this was going to be the year we did it. ain't going to happen. harry reef caved in, made a deal with mitch mcconnell which basically leaves things ju
will fill in the marketplace and not the nra. >> joy evening, americans, and welcome to "the ed show" from new york. now is the time for america to get laser focused on how the republicans are trying to steal the next election. this is "the ed show." let's get to work. >> i think the surprise was some of the turnout. some of the turnout, especially in urban areas. >> forget policy. if you can't win it, just go ahead and rig it. the gop moves to steal elections. first stop? virginia. david corn and charnelle herring tell us if the dirty move could work. the right still can't handle hillary. >> she obviously has an enduring media. >> so the king of the sunday shows bites the hand that feeds him. >> the president's vision for his second term to annihilate the republican party. >> richard wolffee on the republican party's new nerve. >>> democrats just missed a huge opportunity to change the o'country. larry cohen on harry reiding filibuster cave. >>> women get overdue recognition to serve in combat. the right wing is freaking out. former marine goldie taylor is here to put them in t
balance to the nra. there is an organization called americans nor responsible solutions that they are launching today and they make the argument that until now the gun lobby's political contributions have not been matched by others, that is about to change, no longer is what they write, is that how you see it? >> clearly that's their strategy, but again it all comes down to the sort of nuts and bolts of it. what is it that they are proposing? when you get into dash tkaerbg, if you want to create a nation hal database of people who are mentally unstable and shouldn't be getting guns, well do you think maybe that there might be some objection? forget the nra, do you think there might be some objection to epg keeping -- the government keeping a list of mentally unstable people? do you think maybe the aclu, or maybe some other group, psychiatric group might have some objection to the federal government doing that sort of thing stphao. bill: thing? criminals and the mentally ill can easily purchase guns by aeu sroeug avoid -gsing background checks. >> there are laws who preve

recall, was endorsed by the nra, harry reid voted against the assault ban in 2004 and got a b grade from the nra. so if i were giving the democrats any type of advice, they should not follow the president's liberal agenda on gun control. jon: -pt president doesn't have to run for office again. he's won re-election. he has four years to get done what he wants to do. we heard in the inaugural address that he seems to have moved -- well he seems to be pushing some more liberal positions than he espoused earlier. you have senators like tim johnson of south dakota. mark udall of colorado, maryland drew of lashes all of the democratic senators, all of them from states that do not favor increasing restrictions on john sales. >> then also you have members of congress that are up for re-election, and some of these are blue dog democrats. when people go to the polls if they do not vote their conscience and vote for their constituents, people at the polls are going to give them pain of defeat. when it comes to god in certain states and when it comes to guns people do not go against the grain of wha
first hearing on gun violence today. nra ceo wayne lapiere and mark kelly and giffords herself could make a surprise appearance. the couple launched their gun control advocacy group americans for responsible solutions earlier this morningnth and visited newtown connecticut following the mass shooting. today's hearing is expected to be highly incendiary. some of the most staunchly divided lawmakers. and ted cruz and john cornyn of supporters of second amendment rights. a new bill is gaining contraction on the hill. a bi-partisan group of senators including tom co burning, mark kirk joe shoechumer are working on a proposal to strengthen the enforcement of background checks. this does have a potential to break some of the gridlock. coburn said need to keep guns out of the hands of those who pose a danger to themselves and others. and to draft a bill gun rights supporters can get behind. more bill press is up after the break. stay with us. [ music ] these talking points, that the right have, about the "heavy hand of government" ... i want to have that conve
to camp david for a contest. your reaction? >> i have not. [laughter] >> the nra's wayne lapierre has refuted the idea that universal background checks would make a difference, in part pointing to the administration's record of not prosecuting those who have found it a legally purchased guns. what's the administration's response? >> it's a logical fallacy to suggest the unit also background checks will make a difference. we absolutely have to enforce the law and we need to improve our background check system. that is an issue on which the nra and wayne lapierre is in a distinct minority. so i also can tell you everyone here disheartened to see gabrielle giffords testify today. she and her husband will be with the president is looking forward to. >> when is the president going to speaking out on that? >> well, he will continue to make this a priority and you'll hear from him on this issue in the future, but it had a scheduling schedule announcements to make. >> will he appear publicly with gabrielle giffords this afternoon? >> i don't have that expectation. is that forward to her. >> j
, the public sees what's going on, and the recommendations. host: do you support the nra? are you a member? guest: yes. host: now to the phone. good morning. caller: my question has to do with budgets. the house has sent a budget to the senate. the senate has failed to act on that. they have had no budget of their own. the president presented his budget to the house which was defeated. 414-0 with no democratic support. what will it take to get the senate to pass a budget? everybody's talking about deficit control. that all begins with having a budget. guest: we not only need a budget, we need a balanced budget amendment to the constitution, which i have always supported. we have to not only get our budget through the senate, which i am pushing to do. the republicans are not the majority, so we have to get to push a balanced budget through the senate as well as the house. but we have to have a balanced budget amendment. host: john hoven spent 10 years as governor of north dakota. what's the better job? guest: i would say being governor most. of the senators here, who were former governors,
of weapons. >> stephanie: oddly the nra not supportive. [♪ "world news tonight" theme ♪] >> stephanie: they called the effort disappointing. disappointing. they are disappointed. they are yeah. >> disappointed! >> stephanie: yeah, but not surprised. i'm sure that's what hurts her the most. >> i'm disappointed! >> stephanie: senator feinstein has been trying to ban guns for decades, it is disappointing that she is once again trying to curtail the constitution instead of prosecuting criminals or fixing our broken mental health system. the american people know gun bans do not work. >> the question is are you lying then or are you lying now? or are you not a chronic and habitual liar! >> stephanie: congress will reject senator feinstein's wrong-headed approach. a lot of people think that is true, but i hope not. >> no weapon is taken from anyone. the purpose is to dry up the supply of these weapons over time. >> stephanie: my formally republican sister wrote a great letter to her representative in virginia about this. because when you go through one at a time the presi
and he is trying to keep guns out of the hands of bad people. bill: the nra they are not buying any of this. putting out a statement in response to the proposed legislation, quote, saying the quote, the american people know gun bans do not work and we're confident congress will reject senator feinstein's wrong-headed approach, end quote. martha: here is exactly what is in this proposed legislation. it would ban the future sale, transfer, manufacture, importation of 157 different specific kind of semiautomatic guns and would restrict magazines that contain more than 10 rounds. it exclude some weapons from the bill, like assault weapons used by military, law enforcement and retired law enforcement. the legislation does protect hunting and sporting firearms, excluding 2,000 legitimate hunting and sporting rifles and shot guns by specific make and model. coming up we'll speak to the director of communication from the gun owners of america. what his group thinks about this proposed assault weapons ban and what it would mean across the board. bill: there are thousands heading to the natio
at a national level and actually fund candidates to counter balance the nra candidates. so if security and armed security is good for him i expect it for that single mother in new york city who is concerned about thugs and wannabe thugs who are going to rob her home. martha: she can legally have a gun and carry it. >> she can have a gun but it's restrictive as to the number of rounds in the magazine. right now nypd the standard issue firearm has 15 round in a magazine. now in new york you can only have seven. i'm sorry, burglars don't just rob homes by themselves. usually they have partners and they are not going to follow any directive, oh, please if you're going to rob this home, just do it by yourself, don't have two or three or four people with you. i think americans not the government should determine how many bullets they need to defend their person, property and family. martha: what do you think his answer would have been if you had got even through with him. why he deserves, and public officials deserve, and i think you're right, and most americans believe that you want these public offi
reason why he's running the president's effort on gun control, taking on the nra. >> i've done this before. i passed assault weapons ban. >> reporter: more than 20 years ago. >> yeah. and because the so-called biden crime bill had a life span of 20 years and had to be renewed during the bush administration, there was no desire in 2004 to renew it. but that doesn't mean there's still not a consensus for a bulk of what we're proposing. >> so can you guarantee that the president will sign some form of general legislation? >> look, i can't guarantee anything that the congress is going to sign but i can guarantee you that the president and i are absolutely committed to take this fight to the american people for a rational gun safety policy in america. >> reporter: and he is smack in the middle of a fiscal fight. now he's ready for round two and predicts republicans will be different. sdl. >> they finally figured it out. all of this plus sister that they are going to reanything on the debt, they will not. because there are more responsible people in the party than irresponsible. so i
with them. in fact, many of them reflect proposals made by the n.r.a. even if we give senator mcconnell the benefit of the doubt as to whether he actually knew what his campaign manager was putting out, he he is as responsible as we all are for what our employees do in our name. i call on senator mcconnell to apologize to his supporters, some of whom are my constituents, for stoking totally irrational and unjustifiable fear. i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: for what purpose does the gentleman from texas seek recognition? >> pursuant to house resolution 39, i call up house resolution -- h.r. 325 to ensure the complete and timely payment of obligations of the united states government. the speaker pro tempore: does the gentleman mean to call up the rule? mr. sessions: i do. the speaker pro tempore: the clerk will report the resolution. the clerk: house calendar number 2, house resolution 39, resolved, that upon the adoption of this resolution it shall be in order to consider in the house the bill, h.r. 325, to ensure the complete and timely payment of the obligations of the united st
. but it's their option. schools want it or they don't. >> i think you're right because the nra wants it. >> they want it. the president -- >> what do you think of that, reverend? do you want a guy standing there with a pistol or a rifle for 30 years? >> i don't support putting police in schools. i think there's a lot of reasons that you don't but i think that the way that they did it that kept a lot of progressives from screaming is they said, it's the option of the school district and then you've got to go in the school district and organize against it. i think that's the way it was dealt with. but i want to say in terms of the immigration, an aside from that issue, the most emotional moment i saw today other than some of the things the president said was when justice sotomayor stepped up to swear in biden. because i was sitting there and you could feel the whole latino community rise up and everybody stood up clapping. >> biden for president. >> i was able to talk to her afterwards. that was a very emotional and historic moment, the first time in history that we have seen a hispanic s
. this is something the president has said should be left to the schools, the nra says should be part of a national plan. it will be interesting given the poll numbers. the entrenched interests in washington not on the president's side. we'll see what he does there. one other thing i want to note. the president talked about how immigrants in this country should be allowed to go to school and then become the leaders of the next generation, not be deported. well, remember, it was his administration, this is the bush administration here, deportations of illegal immigrants, it was the obama administration that angered many latinos, and especially latino interest groups by increasing the number of deportations. the president is hoping now that this actually gives him some credibility as he tries to negotiate an immigration reform package with republicans. and anderson, one of the things we have seen since the election is the republicans know the math. they see the demographics of this country. they realize they have a crisis. they cannot be a viable national party if they keep getting such a tiny percen
